Nationwide Audio Visual was awarded a large pilot project for University of Toronto Mississauga campus for two very ‘cool’ Active Learning Classrooms. Nationwide scored 98% on the overall matrix for evaluating all A/V integration companies that bid on this particular project. The 2nd closest scored 83%. We were very excited to win this!
These 2 classrooms will be used by students over the next 24 months as a pilot project.
Nationwide will continue to work alongside with the consultant to tweak and make any necessary changes to enhance the student / professor learning experience.
Upon successful execution of the pilot project, University of Toronto hopes to roll out these classrooms modeled around the University of Standard and Harvard Active Learning Classrooms.
